TLC's Top Nine Favourite Stores

Confession: I love to shop. Power shopping. Shopping 'til I drop. Window shopping. I love it all. Especially during the holiday season when the stores are filled with twinkling lights and the comforting aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, cranberry and balsam. YUM.

Here, now, are my Top Nine Favourite Stores (of all time):

1. One word: Nordstrom. Enough said.

2. Anthropologie. I love their unique clothes and fun "home goods." I could spend hours in this store.

3. Williams-Sonoma. My yearly "Christmas list" most always contains something from this splendid shop. (This year? A Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven -- 5 1/2 quarts -- in "Quince." Hint. Hint. Hint.)

4a. Pottery Barn. Delightful. Cozy. Classic.

4b. Pottery Barn Kids. Down-right charming!

5. Hobby Lobby. A crafty, creative store. It has the most extensive and beautiful selection of ribbon I've found. (And I L-O-V-E ribbon.)

6. World Market. When I walk in the door, I can't help but smile. Wine. Pretty flatware. Holiday decor. What more could you want?

7. Target. Oh, Target. Sigh.

8. Fossil. I'm obsessed with their jeans.

9. Bath and Body Works. I wait on pins and needles for their fall and holiday candles and soaps to arrive. And then I quickly stockpile "Leaves" and "Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin" -- like it's going out of style.

(And I didn't even get to mention Papyrus, Sample House, Container Store {My dream job? Professional Organizer.} or my favourite grocery store: Market Street!)

Happy Monday, Lovely Readers!
